Thanks to everyone who participated in Caption Contest 94, I appreciate your willingness to share your creativity. I've chosen a handful of those entries as Finalists, the ones I thought were the funniest of the funny. After I've posted them all, I'll announced which of them is the winner. I hope you enjoy seeing them in the panel as much as I do!
CPrime: My words… are incredible.
I like the mirrored inversion of the narration, it's a nice meta-comment that breaks the "fourth wall" as it were.
dblade: Baby, in this crazy four color world, cyan and yellows just don’t mix. Find yourself a nice magenta fella to settle down with.
There were a number of entries based around the coloring of the two characters, but I thought this one was the cleverest and best worded. You gotta love color theory!
Joel: I just saved a bunch of money on car insurance by switching to Geico.
What makes this funny to me is that I can totally see Geico running a series of web ads exactly like this, replacing classic panels with their slogans.
Mr.MikeK: I like the way Rob Liefeld draws feet and thigh pouches.
Now THAT is incredible, and guaranteed to make someone gape in awe!
Patrick: I took out the garbage, did the dishes, and put the kids down. Is it alright if we just snuggle on the couch and watch “Glee?”
One of the few that genuinely made me laugh out loud.
Sutter Kaine: The Buddhist sees the craving for wordly pleasure as a distraction from the path to enlightenment, but is not the desire for enlightment itself a craving and therefore a distraction?
One of the few that genuinely made me think! I also like how unexpected that sort of comment would be in what is clearly a Romance Comic.
X-Stacy: Look here, darling, if I seem unreasonable, it’s only because you’ve no ability to reason. Rocket science is no career for a woman.
Another one that is funny partly for its being so out of place in a romance comic. Plus that's just a funny turn of phrase, very artfully crafted.
Ah yes, nothing makes a joke funnier than explaining it, right?!
Anyway, the one that really stood out to me all week was one of the very first submitted, and that is Patrick's "Glee snuggle"! Well done, Patrick! Let me know what you'd like for your prize either in a comment here, or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thanks again everyone!
